Monster Energy Supercross made its stop in Seattle, Washington this past weekend at Century Link Field for round 15 of the Monster Energy Supercross Series. What normally is a rain soaked event turned out to be a stellar day, with fantastic weather, a great track and what would turn out to be an historic night for Andrew Short and Fly Racing.
In only his second race back from injury, Andrew Short put on an amazing show for the FLY Racing fans in attendance by grabbing the holeshot in the main event and riding his way to his first ever 450 main event win! After years of coming so close, Short led every lap to take his first win in style and put his name in the record books of 450 SX main event winners.
Weston Peick continued his late season 450-class form with yet another top-ten finish in 9th place. Other FLY riders making the 450 main event included Justin Sipes in 13th, and Matt Georke in 15th. All-in-all, it was an amazing night of racing with large amount of FLY Racing
television coverage on the live broadcast on Speed TV.
A huge congratulation goes out to Andrew Short for his first 450 class win! Way to go Shorty! Everyone at FLY Racing is proud of you and happy for you and your family!
